TEL AVIV, Israel – The Israeli military said sirens in northern Israel were warning of further attacks across the border with Lebanon on Friday. No damage or injury was immediately reported.
In a statement, they said sirens sounded before noon in the Golan Heights and in the Upper Galilee, near the Lebanese border.
A Lebanese military official said the military has yet to confirm rocket fire from southern Lebanon, where the Iranian-backed Hezbollah group has stored thousands of rockets.

The report comes after days of shooting over the border, including rare Israeli airstrikes on what the military has called launch sites.
The nightly airstrikes were a marked escalation at a politically sensitive time. Israel’s new eight-party government coalition is trying to keep the peace under a fragile ceasefire that ended an 11-day war with militant Hamas leaders in Gaza in May.

Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV reported that five rockets were fired from southern Lebanon at an IDF position in the disputed area of Shebaa Farms on the edge of the Golan Heights. The station called the fire “unknown rockets”, an apparent term to suggest the group was not behind the attack.
